But What If Lebron Says No?

Posted By Jordan Lauterbach On Jul 8 2010 @ 12:34 am In New York Knicks | No Comments

While a lot of signs point to Lebron not disappointing Knick brass tonight, it has come out that the Knicks have a plan if he does bolt to Miami or Chicago.

 From Realgm.com:

“If LeBron James chooses not to sign with the Knicks, multiple sources have told Marcus Thompson that the Warriors have an offer on the table that sends forward Anthony Randolph and other pieces to New York in a sign-and-trade deal for Lee”

 David Lee has been the forgotten man in all of this. And rightfully so. The Knicks have made it clear that keeping Lee was either far down on the list of options or not on that list at all. A lot of the reasoning could lie in marketability. We’re not saying that Lee is not good, he is, underrated even.  And we’re not saying that Lee isn’t popular among Knick fans, he is. But bringing Lee back and trying to convince the fan – base that the organization has turned a corner would be a tough sell.  Sure, Amar’e is great, but is he enough to get the Knick fan to buy in? I’m not sure. This summer was about change from the beginning. As good as David Lee may be, he represents much of the same, certainly not change. It probably isn’t fair, but every rebuilding project has to have a casualty or two.

The Warriors would reportedly pay $13 million in Lee’s first year.

This all is speculation, of course. If Lebron comes, we just wasted our time. Here’s to guessing a lot of Knick fans won’t mind that much if that’s the case.
